SEGA-39

or
Weight

Gyokuro is usually brewed in a Japanese Kyushu style teapot and served in cups with no handle. Gyokuro Asahi is made from single buds that are picked only in April/May. In an effort to encourage chlorophyll development (responsible for the dark green colour) and reduce tannin levels (the source of its sweet flavour) the tea is covered with black curtains bamboo or straw shades for 3 weeks before plucking. The leaves are small -about 3/4 of an inch long and extremely fragrant and tender. Immediately after plucking they are taken to the factory and steamed for about 30 minutes to seal in flavors and arrest fermentation. Next, they are fluffed with hot air pressed and dried to around 30% moisture content. The tea is then rolled repeatedly until it resembles long thin dark green needles then dried until around 4-6% moisture content. The tea is then ready for drinking!
